Heart of Matter: The Stuff of Life

Tuesday, July 25, 2023

To love God is to love the cosmos, the earth, the body, materiality—the stuff of life—which is one with God without being identical to God.

Ilia Delio, Making All Things New


“Amar a Dios es amar al cosmos, amar la tierra, amar el cuerpo, amar la materialidad –base de la vida- que es una con Dios sin ser idéntica a Dios.”

Ilia Delio, Making All Things New

What is being asked?
What is being moved?

    Contemplative prayer [ as in the mystical traditions within Christianity and other world religions/philosophies] is what will bring the ‘fullness of time’ to realization via expanding consciousness. Drinking in the relationality of the Triune God leads to the love of all and everything… a fine tuning into the Divine.
    ….. to know fully, to see face to face ❤️ God is consistent. As a human, I find consistency difficult, yet I am called to model love consistently.

    For sure. All that remains is to bring Teilhard into the 21st century, explaining what the 3rd (organic) nature of Christ is, the singularity that all things consist of, embed in, and are held together by in seamless co-presence (spirit-matter). And to do so in psycho-physical terms, rounding out the juridical aspects of the gospel (sin and judgment) that can only come from an incarnational view of creation. Mind you, something no other world religion can rightly lay claim to or celebrate in quite this way, “gathering together in one all things in Christ” (Eph 1:10). Christ, who if u haven’t yet surmised, doubles as the common element co-inhering everything, visible and invisible in heaven and on earth. Such an integral in-gathering is slated to happen “in the dispensation of the fullness of time,” written by Paul into that same verse. Best make haste, the time is short. What, another 10-15 years, maybe? (20 tops, if u listen to the better climate change prognosticators.)
